*A woman in Georgia has sued comedian Mike Epps over claims that he’s the father of her newborn baby, yet refuses to submit to a paternity test so that she can secure child support, reports TMZ.com.
“We are not asking for the moon, we are just asking him to take a paternity test,” said the woman’s lawyer, Randy Kessler. “Once the tests are completed and paternity is confirmed, hopefully, Mr. Epps will do the right thing and begin to provide for his child.”
Kessler says he and his client were trying to keep the matter under wraps, but quiet efforts to contact Epps and his camp have been ignored.
The paternity suit was filed in early February, and followed up with five letters as well as lots of phone calls to Epps’ lawyers – all to no avail, reports TMZ.
The Atlanta woman gave birth to the baby in December 2007.
